God damn it i cant believe how dumb your software is!

 

just wanted to try a new version of oscommerce. used the same database as my existing osc shop is on. the software was installed correctly - i thought there would be a question if i want to choose another prefix or something like this. NO! no advice at all, no message: there is already an osc installation on that database or something like this.

 

i dont have a new backup. my data is away! i have now one customer and some very old dvds in my shop... THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I HATE YOUR F****** SYSTEM! IT TOTALLY SUCKS!

1) "how stupid can a team of programmers be? " how stupid can a shop owner be! you should always backup backup!!!

 

2) you should have looked at the documentation.pdf??

 

3) you will not get help if you post this way!!

 

4) go to your host and get them to install a backup of your account

This is the exact reason why I always recommend that shop owners know enough about oscommerce, php, sql etc not to make dumb mistakes and that they test code in a test environment and not on a live shop.

Don't let the door hit you in the butt as you are leaving.

 

I don't think it needs be the door, he was doing as much to himself, thats who he refered to when writing the title. Must have forgot to install the likes of http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/2314

fortunately my host has got a backup from tonight...

 

but its still unlucky to code something that doesn't check if there's already a package installed.

 

And yes I know its very dumb not to make backups!

 

thread can be deleted. sorry for being rough.

He does have a point, a simple "Database already exists with that name, do you want to overwrite?" would not be a bad idea.

 

Or if the developers have a gsoh

 

"You idiot a database already exists with that name, do you want to overwrite?"

Why all the other 178,439 user's do not need this?

as if you can not install osC right you should not run a online site as how are you to send orders to the right customers??

You have a point, but lot of people that install osc are complete id**ts when it come to IT, but good at making money. Just look at the questions posted here.

 

How many back up? 30%? Less

 

All it takes is one thoughtless click.

 

How many people that do mess up are willing/brave enough to display their mistake to the whole world?

 

Why quible over an extra hal a dozen lines of code?

If you can do this make a addon so it could then be a pre install mod
